Online Selling Tip of the Week

My selling tip for you this week doesn’t get any more basic than this:

~List the items you’ve purchased before buying more inventory ~

In my early years of selling online, I was famous for having boxes and bins of unlisted inventory and leaving it sit there while I went shopping for more.  Not anymore.  If it’s not listed, it can’t sell, which means I have money invested in my inventory and it’s just sitting there with no chance for it to make me a profit.

Now I’m pretty strict with myself about listing what I have before buying more because so many times when I would list items that had been sitting around for months, the items would sell within days of listing them and I would be kicking myself……..why didn’t I list that sooner?

No more kicking myself.  When I buy it, I try to have it listed within 48 hours, and if I’m not able to list within 48 hours, I list it before I go out to buy more.  So give it a try, I think you’ll like the results.
